We actually had stopped at a house and once we got into that backyard, we could see that there was a situation next door. There were several dogs in the backyard and we couldn’t see any dog houses. There was a big mattress laying in the backyard and the kid at the house that we were at told me that the dogs slept on that mattress. We had to hurry that day and get to the vet, but we came back a couple of days later and knocked on their door. It turns out that there were 4 female dogs in the backyard and none of them were spayed! Boy, did we score by noticing this house! The people were very receptive to spaying all of them. We took their information, gave them food and rawhides. Turns out the dogs had a shed they could get into, although it was open on one side. They also had a shower stall on it’s side that we crammed hay into as well. None of the dogs were chained, so that was great to see! The news actually was following us around the day that we went back over here and they filmed the dogs and their situation:
We set up their spay appointments and I went over to pick them all up one morning. The people all came out to help and we ended up taking the female cat in for her spay, too! It didn’t cost this family anything, but 5 female animals are fixed now.
This is why it’s so important for us to be out on the streets everyday, looking for animals needing help. We always find them. What a difference Chain of Hope has made just at this one house. Thanks for keeping us out there.
